This short personal reflection is offered as a response to the crass commercialisation and diversionary spirit that has overtaken the time of Easter throughout much of the Western world. It offers an Ignatian remembrance - an act of conscious imagining and visualisation - of the events that took place in Palestine some 2,000 years ago when Jesus of Nazareth suffered horrendous cruelty in the execution by crucifixion ordered by the local and Imperial governors at that time.
Yet the time of Easter bespeaks more than a Paschal sacrifice. It heralds the regeneration and renewal that emanates endlessly through the heart of love.
The music that accompanies this piece was composed and performed (multitrack) by Nico Di Stefano.
